Attorney Elizabeth A. Chiappetta was drawn to the practice of law to help people and to use her investigative skills to get answers. Trying jury trials is the ultimate manifestation of what Liz does, but her true desire is to make clients comfortable in a tough time, such as when dealing with families who have lost a loved one, or someone who has undergone a life-changing accident.

Elizabeth and her husband and sons are members of the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation, Children's Trust, and they are also members of St. Bernard Church in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania.

Elizabeth focuses on being as responsive as possible. She is not afraid to be candid with clients while being empathetic and sympathetic to how the truth may be hurtful or upsetting. She is very observant, conscientious, dedicated, sensitive, and empathetic.

Elizabeth grew up in Buffalo, NY and went to an all-girls school there, Nardin Academy. She is still quite proud to be from Buffalo, and is a devout Buffalo Bills football fan. She is the mother of two sons so hobbies have subsided lately, but she enjoys cooking, traveling, interior décor, and of course spending time with her husband and family.
